Ok, Tracey, here’s how it all went down as I see it. A poster (alycabally) reported trouble opening a zip file downloaded from another site. Being a generally good-natured and helpful person I took a look at said site to see if I could ascertain what the problem might be. Whereupon it became evident that the zips downloaded from this site were password protected, a fact I passed on in the post you apparently took objection to. If it wasn’t ‘immediately clear’ what I was suggesting then perhaps a couple of clicks on the ‘see parent post’ link might have enlightened you. I’ve often, probably deservedly, been called many things on this forum, but any implication, direct or indirect, that I’m spamming, or condoning spamming, I find objectionable.

And yes, it is perfectly common to come across both zips and rars that are password protected. Feel like moving that position of yours a little more?

sure i'm in a generous mood and recanting is important to you.

for the record, i read all the way up to the mommy post twice and it wasn't 100% clear it was talking about another item (i often am confused reading GD forum posts, but i think there are often quite mystifying posts in GD -- all part of the charm/appeal i can tell).

(i took no objection to you trying to help -- very kind of you. i was concerned, and wrong, that you were one of the malice-ee-osious people we have been trying to hunt down...)

enjoy the week!

Tracey - you're by no means the only one who gets confused by the posts in gd territory. Mischievous mystification is the forte of many in these parts.

I thank you for your graciousness - I may be an asshole (as many will testify) but I'm not an evil or 'malice-ee-osious' asshole.

You enjoy your week too!
